Fabulous book of facts to contrast evolutionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 May 2019
I've really enjoyed this book. There are so many fascinating facts about our natural world that really get you thinking. Take for example, the wood pecker. This is a totally unique bird. It is the only bird to have a sponge pad between its beak and its head which absorbs the impact of striking a tree. In other birds, the skull and the beak are fused together. Woodpeckers also have two toes pointing forwards and two toes pointing backwards to enable them to cling onto trees. They have amazing tongues too. The woodpeckers tongue is not attached to the back of the mouth like other birds tongues, but circles around inside the skull to attach to the top of the woodpeckers head! Without the spongy pad, the birds couldn't peck for six hours a day, without their strange feet, they couldn't cling onto trees to feed and without their special tongue, they couldn't reach into insect tunnels to feed. Without this unique design, they wouldn't survive! The theory of evolution would have required each of these qualities to have happened by accident and developed by chance at the same time!

Excellent - for your childReviewed in the United States on 31 December 2020
This is an excellent "apologetics" book for children. Nature speaks of the glory of God. When you look at "design" in creation, you have to know that there was a very intelligent being behind this universe. From the woodpecker who has unusual feet that keep him from falling when as he does his "pecking". to the little organism that does not survive outside of the body - so how could a this more simple organism come before humans... Children begin to realize that there is a God who created and who loves us.

Kindle Edition needs Accuracy with Printed EditionReviewed in the United States on 4 September 2017
While the content is excellent this book does NOT match up to the printed edition. There are added words, the paragraphs have been disassembled and resorted making it difficult to follow along if one is on a kindle device and one is reading a printed book.

Great book!Reviewed in the United States on 27 June 2019
A lot of thought provoking facts and thoughts about God's world. When you are talking to an atheist or someone who sees no evidence of God then you have some responses to make them think about what they see everyday. How can you not believe in God when you look around you or in the mirror?
